The outcome of a Dominican Republic workshop, this book provides a thorough overview of the role of barrier contraceptives in both birth control and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The text summarizes current scientific understanding of the various barrier methods, and discusses the latest research efforts aimed at improving their contraceptive and prophylactic efficacy. This volume is organized into sections covering topics in barrier use, barrier research, research methodologies, and barriers and STDs. The book closes with a section featuring reports from "working groups" addressing various subjects in barrier contraception.
